Oregon has emerged as a leader and economic hub of renewable energy and clean technology innovation, but there is much more work that needs to be done.


Significant threats and risks to Oregon’s economy ranging from warming temperatures, wildfires, drought, depleting snowpack and ocean acidification. These global and local risks have direct impact on the immediate and long term health of Oregon’s diverse economy including agriculture, fisheries, recreational, financial, energy and natural resource industries.


Advancing and endorsing a statewide climate policy that encompasses a price on carbon emissions with reinvestment into Oregon communities and infrastructure provides a significant opportunity for Oregonians and businesses to address climate change head-on while being at the forefront of clean technology innovation and economic competitiveness.
